Last night the Uganda police officers who were on patrol accidentally shot the Uganda Cranes footballer Geoffrey Massa but now they have come out to claim that it was all a mistake that was never intended.
Below is the Official statement the police has put out in defence of their officers who shot Geofrey Massa accidentally at Kireka-Nambole last night:
“Last night July 13th, 2017, there was an incident in which police on patrol suspecting a parked vehicle along the high way on the Nambole Fly Over, stopped and wanted to talk to the occupants.
It’s reported that the driver, Geoffrey Massa sped off in a rush sending more suspicion. In an attempt to stop them, officers attempted to shoot the tyres of the vehicle and subsequently injured the lady in the vehicle.
He, Geoffrey Massa suddenly stopped, almost hit another motorist and allegedly hit his forehead on the windscreen, injuring himself.
He rushed to a nearby clinic called GWATIRO and he has received medical attention. The woman friend, one Josephine Maliza, appropriately 25 years old got a bullet wound and is equally getting treatment at the same facility.
She is not dead, not even in critical condition according to reports got from the medical teams handling them.
The police have opened a General Inquiry File (GEF) to establish the truth behind the incident. We shall keep all informed accordingly.”
